Abstract : This report presents the design and building of DSL-Lab, a platform for distributed computing and peer-to-peer experiments over the domestic broadband Internet. Experimental platforms such as PlanetLab and Grid'5000 are promising methodological approaches for studying distributed systems. However, both platforms focus on high-end services and network deployments on only a restricted part of the Internet, and as such, they do not provide experimental conditions of residential broadband networks. DSL-Lab is composed of 40 low-power and noiseless nodes, which are hosted by participants, using users' xDSL or cable access to the Internet. The objective is twofold: 1) to provide accurate and customized measures of availability, activity and performance in order to characterize and tune the models of such resources~; 2) to provide an experimental platform for new protocols, services and applications, as well as a validation tool for simulators and emulators targeting these systems. In this article, we report on the software infrastructure (security, resources allocation, power management) as well as on the first results and experiments achieved.
